Pavarotti Doc Trailer

"After working on Eight Days a Week I became fascinated by another cultural icon, who took an elite art form and made it entertainment for the masses." –Ron Howard. CBS Films has launched the first official trailer for the feature-length documentary Pavarotti, directed by Ron Howard - a spectacular look at the life and voice of opera legend Luciano Pavarotti. Born in 1935 in Northern Italy, Pavarotti went on to become one of the world's most famous and successful opera singers. He was one of the Three Tenors who performed their first concert during the 1990 FIFA World Cup before a global audience. This doc is made by the same crew that made Ron Howard's The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years, which means it will be a comprehensive film covering his entire life with tons of incredible archival footage. And it's being mastered for Dolby Atmos cinemas. As he is the one-and-only Pavarotti! What a tremendous trailer - enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ron Howard's doc Pavarotti, direct from YouTube:

Oh man, I am so very down for this. My dad was a Luciano obsessive. I still have tons of LPs, VHS tapes and Laserdiscs of Luciano's old performances sitting in my basement.

Opera ain't my say the've always thought it to be, I don't know...kind of lame. However, that a human being can sing like that is beyond comprehension. I just don't want to listen to it for any length of time. Give me Pink Floyd or Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen...meaningful and real and authentic stuff. Just a voice alone is not enough for me. I'd watch this just because of the man's talent. However, as much as I loved the Beatles and their work, Ron Howard's documentary of them was a crashing bore and nothing I'd not seen before. So I hesitate to give Howard another chance as I'm not too sure of his chops in the documentary genre.

Of course it's a talent in question. But I'm not sure if that works for the doc here...
